# DIFFERENT WAYS TO WRITE A NUMBER

## About "Different ways to write a number"

"Different ways to write a number" is the much required stuff for the children who study  math in primary level.

## Three different ways to write a number Standard form :

This is a way to write a number showing only its digits. This is the form we are most familiar with and see most often.

Example : 5,673,289

Expanded form :

This is a way to write a number as the sum of the value of  its digits. This form indicates the place value of each digit  in the number.

Example :

5,000,000 + 600,000 + 70,000 + 3,000 + 200 + 80 + 9

= 5,673,289

For example,

Word form :

This is a way to write a number in words only, also need to include commas separating the periods. If there are commas in standard form, there must be commas in word form.

Example :

Five million, six hundred seventy three thousand, two hundred eighty nine.

## Examples

Example 1 :

Convert the number given below into standard form.

Two million, five hundred seventy three thousand, two hundred seventy one.

Solution : Hence, standard form of the given number is, 2,573,271

Example 2 :

Convert the number given below into standard form.

Seventy five  million, sixty three thousand, five hundred.

Solution : Hence, standard form of the given number is, 75,063,500

Example 3 :

Convert the number given below into word form.

56,623,589

Solution : Hence, the expanded form is,

Fifty six million, six hundred twenty three thousand, five hundred eighty one.

Example 4 :

Convert the number given below into expanded form.

7,856,254

Solution : Hence, the expanded form is,

7,000,000+800,000+50,000+6,000+200+4 = 7,856,254

Example 5 :

Convert the number given below into standard form.

2,085,162

Solution : Hence, the expanded form is,

2,000,000+80,000+5,000+100+60+2 = 2,085,162

In examples 4 & 5, to get expanded form, each digit of the number to be multiplied by the value of its place and add them together.

For example, in 4562, 4 is at thousands place. So 4 has to be multiplied by 1000 and we get 4000.

In the same way, we have to multiply each digit by the value of its place to expanded form.

After having gone through the stuff and example problems explained on "Different ways to write a number", we hope that students would have understand "How to convert a number from one form to another form".
